Designer Dialogues: Timothy Goodman

Getting Away With Shit

Like many designers, Timothy Goodman is held down by rules and parameters that constantly stifle him. So how does he get his own sensibilities into his work? A couple of years ago, he decided to redirect his design career and push himself into new, scary, and unexpected territory through drawing, writing, and personal projects. He'd rather approach graphic design as a practice, not as a profession. Join Timothy as he reveals his way of getting away with shit. After the talk, there will be Q&A and a book signing.
